Korhan Erel

Korhan Erel is a computer musician, improviser and sound designer based in Berlin. He treats the computer as an instrument that can co-exist with conventional instruments in free improvisation. He makes frequent use of field recordings or found sounds in his instrument designs. His music covers free improvisation, conceptual sound performances as well as structured and composed pieces, the latter mainly performed at art events and museums in Europe. He is a founding member of Islak Köpek, Turkey’s pioneering free improvisation group. He performs solo, duo and group concerts in Turkey and Europe. Korhan also does sound design and music for theater, video and dance. His collaboration 'The Threshold' with Sydney-based video artist Fabian Astore has won the Blake Prize in Australia in 2012. Korhan has done three residencies at STEIM in Amsterdam on sensors and instrument design. He was a guest composer at the Electronic Music Studios in Stockholm in 2011. He has many CD releases in Turkey, the Netherlands, Portugal and Greece as well as several internet releases.
